In addition to the ‘general’ safety risks (see above), the following health risks will also need to be identified and considered, for inclusion in the policy and procedures and management system(s):

  •  Blood
    •  Hepatitis
    •  HIV
    •  Tetanus
  •  Breathing
    •  Asthma and allergic reactions
    •  Legionella and other diseases of the airways and lung (COPD etc.)
    •  Lung and other respiratory organ cancers
    •  Mesothelioma and asbestosis
  •  Skin
    •  Burns (cement etc.)
    •  Contamination (oils etc.)
    •  Dermatitis
  •  Musculo-skeletal
    •  Back and neck pain
    •  Hand-arm and whole-body vibration
    •  Upper-limb disorder
  •  Hearing
    •  Deafness
    •  Tinnitus
  •  Wellbeing
    •  Cancer
    •  Chronic fatigue
    •  Stress

Once the risk assessment process has identified all / any health risks, a health surveillance system of on-going health checks may be required, to detect ill-health effects, at an early stage and prevent them getting worse.
